November sweeps is a big time in television; it’s a time when big names and big plots often collide in big ways. CSI is going to follow the pattern and bring in a terrific actress whom you might know from Back to the Future, or perhaps more recently on Switched at Birth. I am, of course, referring to Lea Thompson. She’s a joy to have, even if only for a single episode. I’m surprised they didn’t cast her for the 300th episode, but I suppose that one was already bursting with guest stars and anymore would’ve capsized it. And by capsize I mean ruined it by having way too many characters running around.

Thompson will be playing a smart, no-nonsense woman ­– name currently unknown – with a rich history. According to THR, she knows her way around a CSI lab and has worked many crime scenes in Detroit. »
